Many regions still keep suffering from instability threats. Assuming its global role and obligations, the EU is highly committed to offer aid and cooperation far beyond its borders.
Many region-specific problems require tailor-made solutions. These are addressed by Regional and Country Strategy Papers stimulating good governance, trade and sustainable development, social cohesion and the rule of law.
The EU tries to deal with tensions and insecurity as early as possible to prevent the outbreak or re-emergency of violence and addresses the structural causes of conflicts.
